Despite the Gwinnett County Commission’s decision to postpone the vote on an annual budget that would have included a 25 percent tax increase, organizers are going through with a protest rally at 7 p.m. Monday in the city of Suwanee’s Town Center Park.
The event is sponsored by local activists with FreedomWorks and Atlanta Tea Party Patriots. Another anti-tax group.
Two GOP candidates for governor, John Oxendine and Karen Handel, plan to be there. Others have been invited.
But vampire hunters are sure to be disappointed. Debbie Dooley, one of the organizers, includes this bit of guidance for attendees:
“Bring signs, but no wooden stakes are allowed.”
We’re assuming pitchforks and torches are also verboten.
